MAYOR LEE: DECLARE A STATE OF EMERGENCY ALCALDE ED LEE: DECLARE EL ESTADO DE EMERGENCIA
WE DEMAND THAT THE CITY TAKE THE FOLLOWING IMMEDIATE ACTIONS:PDF VERSION Declare a State of Emergency to Address Affordable Housing Crisis
- Recognize and acknowledge that San Francisco is facing a serious crisis in affordable housing and formulate a bold plan to address this crisis.
- Place a moratorium on evictions in San Francisco for at least 12 months and a moratorium on market-rate development for 2 years. No more luxury “Monsters in the Mission”.
- Pass legislation to stop the displacement of our cultural and artistic communities and institutions.
- Approve Just Cause Protection 2.0 for tenants.
- Investigate the cluster of fires in the Mission District that have killed at least three people so far. Require that the owners of fire-damaged buildings in the Mission provide every resident and business the right to return at the same rental price and terms. Fast-track the rehabilitation of fire-damaged rental units.
- Make substantial budget allocations (at least $150 million per year) for affordable housing, down payments on Co-op Home Ownership, and Mission non-profit property and build at least 3,000 affordable housing units in the Mission over the next five years for people with 0-30% AMI.
- Generate increased funding for housing from corporate taxes, property tax increases, transfer fees, developer in lieu fees, the Housing Trust Fund, a substantial Housing Bond, and taxes on short-term rentals.
- Issue vouchers, without expiration, for all people who have been evicted from the Mission through No-Fault Evictions and create a system to manage voucher receipts.
- Provide housing to all residents of San Francisco by utilizing available Treasure Island, Presidio, and Housing Authority resources.
- Identify and purchase a sufficient amount of sites for affordable housing including publicly-owned land.
- Stop the criminalization of homeless residents of the Mission and house every homeless resident of the Mission, including single adults, families and children.
- Create a Mission Housing Committee that is accountable, open, transparent, and oversees bottom-up for-profit housing development in the Mission and develops a long term ten year strategic plan to preserve and expand affordable housing in the Mission.
